Good morning everyone and...

Happy #RECIPEFRIDAY!

Plus...

It's the beginning of the weekend so what better way to get it going than to...

Enjoy some of these little delights!


Now of course...

As #RECIPEFRIDAY calls for me to share my favourite recipe of the week...

I'm thrilled to give you the ins on how to make these bites of goodness!


And trust me...

It's simple! (Look it, you're talking to me here lol)

So enough talking...

    Honestly...

    They are so delish! (And they satisfy that PB and Chocolate craving I so often have!)


    Now, on top of all of this yumminess...

    You can even...

    Dip some fruit in the remaining protein FUdge if you've got some leftover! (Or, enjoy it whichever way you prefer...with a spoon perhaps? lol)

    Needless to say, it's...

    Mmm Mmm good!

    And...

    Just when you thought I was done...

    I have another way in which you can utilize the same ingredients to make...

    Cookies!

      Food.FUn.Life.

      Morning everyone...

      I hope this Wednesday finds you well!

      Honestly...

      I can't believe we're already half way through the week!

      I mean...

      My staycation is almost over! (In case you forgot, I'm on holidays this week!)

      I have to say though...

      Being at home has really given me the time to get my stuff together and essentially...

      Get things done!

      I think it's my new glasses.
      I'm finally 'seeing' things through ;)

      But don't you worry...

      This time off has included some relaxation too!

      I'm looking forward to getting rejuvenated at the spa tomorrow!

      Having said that...

      I'm also looking forward to getting my hair did, but more importantly...

      Bringing this guy for his own trimming as well!

      I'm hoping his haircut will be better than the last time!

      Moving on...

      Seeing that it's Wednesday and all...

      This means I'm up for another edition of...

      Thanks to Jenn over at peas and crayons.

      I must admit...

      I've been making a whole whack of new things on the food front in light of this coming Friday's...

      #RECIPEFRIDAY

      So there's no denying...

      Things have definitely been cooking in FU's kitchen! ;)

      In between my workouts and what not ;)

      All that being said...

      Here's a glimpse into some of the food I've been making and eating!

      I can see clearly now ;)

      First off...

      And let's just say...

      I'm super pumped to have you join in this recipe exchange!

      I have a feeling the outcome will be...

      Nothing but good! (Literally! lol)

      Okay so...

      Today I wanted to talk to you about my  life as of late and...

      What I've been up to now that I have no tangible fitness goals in sight! (2013 is wide open at this moment in time!)

      It's true.

      To be completely honest...

      My goal right now is to...

      Re-connect with myself  as I continue moving forward in my healthy living journey and...

      Life as a whole!

      Why? Because...

      I feel that sometimes when I work towards a goal...

      As much as I put in the conscious effort to learn and grow (both mentally and physically)...

      I can't really give 100% of myself to doing just that! 

      As much as I strive for balance!

      I won't deny...

      There's more of myself that goes into achieving my goals versus...

      My taking the time to really sit down and reflect on how these goals are shaping me as an individual! (I do my best to put in the time but I know it's not enough because I'm always jumping from one thing to the next!)

      That's why right now...

      My focus it to simply enjoy living in the present and...

      Really enjoying every moment that I have here, right now! (Whether it be with myself or others!)


      By taking the time to sit back and just let myself be (without working towards anything specifically)...

      This will enable me to connect with myself (on many levels) and...

      It will allow me to refocus, regroup as well as...

      Live, appreciate and be grateFUl for all the things I've put into me and my ever-changing self! 

      Don't get me wrong...

      I love me a goal and I love working towards them too but...

      I believe that staying connected with our inner-self is a really important goal to work towards as well! (As much as we want to stay on top of things and not miss a beat, we have to ensure that we don't lose the connection with ourself in the midsts of things!)


      Having said all of this...

      Here's how I plan to stay connected with myself...daily!


      And if you're a believer in signs...

      I'll take this thoughtFUL gift I received from a blog reader as a sign of my needing to re-connect with my mat and most importantly...

      With myself on it!

      Un gros merci Caro!
      xo

      Question FU You...

      How do you stay connected with yourself?
